GTA V to be announced before E3?

GTA V to be announced before E3?

Analyst reckons suspension is building.

Games industry analyst Mike Hickey has said a Grand Theft Auto V announcement may be on the way - and that it could be made before E3 kicks off in June.

"There is building suspension for a pre-E3 GTA V announcement," he said, as reported by Industrygamers. "Although we expect nothing from Rockstar at this year’s official E3 event."

Vice City Stories PS2 details

No multiplayer, but it'll be pretty.

Rockstar has cleared the charges against Vice City Stories this afternoon, confirming that the game will retail for GBP 19.99 when it launches on 9th March, which leaves you enough spare pennies to start your very own crime syndicate.

Originally a PSP game, it will be ported to PS2 and feature enhanced graphics as well as improved draw distance and overall performance.

Like Liberty City Stories on PlayStation 2, which was also ported from PSP, it won't feature a multiplayer mode - something Rockstar is keen to do, but only if it's done properly.

Rockstar hadn't commented on any additions or pricing specifics at the time of publication, but if it's in keeping with its Liberty City counterpart, then expect a cheaper-than-usual cover price and the loss of the PSP's multiplayer options.
